Let's Get Purse-onal!

"I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works and that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14

At our Women's Retreat of which I will post about later on this week, our awesome speaker Chery Gregory shared something really neat with us that I thought would be a blessing to know while we try to have healthy relationships with family and friends. God created us all different so we can all bring something different to the table. Some time though, we fail to embraces those differences and seek to get our way. When Chery shared this with us, it answered alot of my "why's" and put things under perspective. She wanted to bring hope for our broken relationships so they woudl heal and be what God meant for them to be..empowering, uplifting, a blessing, a safe haven of love. I hope you enjoy this it's pretty neat and insightful..maybe just maybe, you'll know why your boss or neightbor does what she does! She also told us that God created us in a very unique way that we shouldn't have to be "somebody" to please someone in our life, we should be content and love the way God created us! What purse are you?

* Goal - Party, have fun, if they're not having fun they will creat it
* Needs - attention all the time, approval
* Bumper stickers - "are we having fun yet?" "how can I make this all about me?" "what will it take for you to like me?"

MELANCHOLY (PERFECT) - green small purse

I was able to see which one best describes me even though I could fit two. Chery says that this is normal to fit more than one but that one will be more prominant. Are you able to pick out which one describes you??? I thought it was pretty neat and helpful. She even told us which ones her kids were and gave us pretty neat examples!

God, My Savior Forever! said...

I am almost all Phlegmatic but she did say that phlegmatics tend to be a mix of a couple or even a few of these since they can adjust to any sitation. I can also be a melancholy and once in a blue moon I can be a comes out depending on who I'm with. How bout you?

Nice to meet you Susan. We would have loved to adopt from Mexico, however they only adopt older children, and we were trying to stay in birth order. We have a 9 year old, and 6 year old.
Keep praying, and God will point you in His direction.

Timmy's Girl said...

I seemed to fit best into the Phlegmatic...not really into the other ones, too much, because, for example: Although some of the Choleric fit me, I would never choose function over fashion and a day w/out flip-flops for me...well, I just can't think about it without getting teary eyed ;0).

God, My Savior Forever! said...

Yeah you love your flip flops huh? They are very comfy and low key:D I do both..sometimes I like to dress up, sometimes I just want comfort.
